Summary Matapari is an African child of the '90s, growing up in a world of the Internet, satellite TV, and where dictators remake themselves as democrats overnight. His uncle is a stooge for the dictator; his father is a recluse obsessed with proving that blacks played key roles in history. Dongala uses the viewpoint of a child to show up the world of adults, and how one perseveres in a corrupt and violent society.
